Jordan quarterback Austin Kafentzis’ season wrapped up with the Beetdiggers’ 44-20 loss to Brighton in the Class 5A state semifinals Friday at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
And it was another impressive individual season for the Wisconsin commit. According to state high school football historian extraordinaire George Felt, here’s where Kafentzis ranks in state history:
This season, he tied for the state record for 100-yard games (12), tied for second in consecutive 100-yard games (11), fourth in total offense (4,795 yards), tied for 10th in touchdowns-responsible-for (50) and tied for 12th in rushing touchdowns (30). Those are his ranks for this season only.
When it comes to his career — and remember he’s only a junior, so he has one more season left — here’s where he ranks: first in total offense (13,909 yards), first in TDs-responsible-for (149), first in rushing TDs (75), first in 100-yard games (27), second in touchdowns scored (75), second in passing yards (9,024), second in completions (593), second in attempts (1,040), third in carries (703), fourth in rushing yards (4,895) and eighth in touchdown passes (74).
Individual accolades are little consolation, but watching Kafentzis is impressive.
